"And whoso receiveth you, there I will be also, for I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up." D&C 84:88

We say Fairwell to Elder Mchunu - At Least for Now

We take the time to catch a picture with Elder Mchunu today.  He is being transferred tomorrow morning ahead of the transfers next week so he can get to Cape Town because he is becoming the new Assistant to the President, which is a wonderful opportunity for a very obedient missionary.  We think the world of Elder Mchunu.

He tells the story of his youth as one of being a member but not totally committed to the church and certainly not thinking of a mission until one evening quite late he came home to hear his mother in vocal prayer kneeling by his bed.  He explained that as he stood outside the door to his room and listened in on the vocal prayer of this mother his life changed in the twinkling of an eye.  He knew and understood both the love of his mother but he also began to understood the love of the Savior.  Since that day he has focused on preparing for and serving as a valiant missionary.  It can be said of Elder Mchunu that “He did not doubt his mother knew it”.

Take a look at June 13, 2004 to see another interesting story about Elder Mchunu.  It is nice to see him finally smiling in this picture.
